  • As a young child growing up in the Barren Run section of LaRue County, Kyle Williamson wasn’t really hard-headed or stubborn; he just liked to ask questions, to find out why, to just about any subject that came up.

    “I think, at times, my questioning probably caused big problems for Mom and Dad (Mike and Kathy Williamson),” the 25-year-old man, who recently opened a law office in Hodgenville, said. 

  • Kentucky students are invited to create posters and write essays based on the theme “Kentucky Proud: Growing a Healthy Kentucky” in the Kentucky Department of Agriculture’s annual Poster and Essay Contest.

  • Census facts – U.S. Census workers will be going door-to-door from April to July 2010. To be sure you aren’t scammed, BBB offers these tips: A Census worker must present an ID that contains a Dept. of Commerce watermark and expiration date. The worker will provide you with a supervisor contact upon request and provide you with a letter from the Census Bureau. A Census worker will never ask for your social security number, bank account or credit card numbers. Census workers also never solicit for donations and will never contact you via e-mail.
